    Do not know how I missed that yesterday. Have not been to my base in awhile.

    Been getting into this a few hours here and there since Christmas.

    For now, all I will say is what I find the best aspect of this game is the relatively seamless exploration. One of the greatest things is being able to fly up on an explored planet, and rather than hit a landing routine, actually fly down through the clouds, and see its landscape appear before you. The sense of scale is pretty good.
    It's great way to get lost in space.

    Grinding away. Traded to a A explorer, and will be reseting the simulation when I get to the galactic center.

    I once fired loads of rockets into the sky to spell “Yes mans”

    It was Yes Mans Sky.

    So I'm going to start No Man's Sky. I thought about it today while at work, and will install/update it after dinner when my wife goes to the gym. Probably wont get to play til tomorrow.

    I actually have a disc from from when I bought the game, what, two, three years ago? but never got around to playing (I assume it's still the same game sans updates?) The reason I got thinking about No Man's Sky, was I was thinking about firing up Subnautica again--which I completed, and loved--but thought I would go for something new.

    There is a major update coming soon, AFAIR.

    May give up. Took the update and needed a video driver update. Causes occasional blank frame. Some keys are not working and I cannot reap them. I will wait until another patch for this patch is available and decide then.

    The new update is buggy, I'd hold off for a bit.

    If I could get the analysis visor working to scan objects, I would resume playing.
